Elderlynk: Interdisciplinary Clinical Education Noon Seminars Gamma Rho provided volunteers to assist in planning and teaching biweekly seminars at A.T. Still University Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, part of an Interdisciplinary Clinical Education (ICE) program. Oral presentations were delivered to a team of medical students, physicians, nurses, speech pathologists, health educators and students in these areas to improve geriatric healthcare. Gammans were trained to work in interdisciplinary teams to improve geriatric healthcare, and worked in groups to review case studies. Gammans served as table leaders or seminar presenters, and worked with the interdisciplinary planning and presentation teams with data and resources for activities. Health Educators provided knowledge to promote disease prevention and the students are prepared to work with elderly issues with future patients. The support given by Gammans to the ICE program is viewed as a vital contribution to the medical community of Kirksville, and encourage elderly advocacy.
